1989 Volkswagen Jetta GT Coupe 1.8L 8v from North America
A economical fun and peppy car
Oil pump was plugged do to lack of oil changes by previous owner. Had to replace the oil pump and clean out the oil pan.
Aftermarket sunroof which the previous owner installed leaks. Aftermarket sunroofs are not recommended whatsoever.
CV joint gave out on the drivers side.
This car has been great, very reliable after the initial problems inherited from the previous owner were dealt with.
It hauls everything needed with it's very roomy trunk.
Fun to drive, and incredibly cheap and easy to work on as long as you have the Bentley manual for this car.
As long as it is given the little amount of routine attention it needs, it will feel as if it will keep going on and on forever.
161,000 miles and still has the original clutch.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
